In this video, her core exercise group seems to be those very fit and trim people who had exercised to sustain their body for their profession.
It is very clear to say that Jane Fonda's early videos, like this one, Complete Workout, Easy Workout, Prime Time Fitness, Workout With Weights, and the tough Jane Fonda Challenge Workout are all very good workouts. These were done prior to the massive surge of competition that flooded the market, where everybody sold an exercise video.
Hence, Fonda's later videos suffered in quality! Those being: Lean Routine, Step Workout, Lower Body Solution, etc.
The Baby of 'em All
This 1982 classic video is the baby of 'em all. The video comes in two sections, Beginners - 30 minutes and Advanced - 60 minutes.
In her warm-up, she even does jumping jacks also with great stretching routines, and you will see movements that today's exercise gurus don't do anymore. If you are new to exercising, you will feel the pain.
The basis of this workout is certain repetitive movements that focus on single muscle groups against the resistence of your own body weight.
Fonda works with every part of the body, from deep stretching to great waist work, grueling crunches, tendon stretches and serious deep lunges. She uses repetitive counts for each segment. At times, her voice overdubs the program to give advice and offer proper techniques while working out.
This is a tough workout, and if you are serious for strenuous workouts, and if you desire to improving your fitness regime, do this workout. And get the companion book "Jane Fonda Workout Book"
Then, try the Jane Fonda Challenge Workout, it has a very challenging aerobic section that is even tougher. .....Rizzo
This video has two workouts, beginner and advanced. The beginner is 30 minutes and the advanced is 55 minutes. Each workout begins with a vigourous warmup followed immediatey by arms,waist,cardio exercises. Then follows with a substantial abs, hip ,leg ,and butt exercises plus a cooldown.
The beginner workout is good and really warms and streches your body, for me it is not enough I would follow with weights or more cardio. However the advanced workout is still a challenge and I like that one best. I have found that one of the really good factors to this and other JANE FONDA WORKOUTS is the streching, it really limbers you up and helps to create long lean muscles. And the exercises are done in a way to maxamize your calorie buring potential.
However a word of note, do not expect a full cardio workout like that of other tapes. This cardio workout is really short. It is more about toning using your body as resistance. Becareful with some of the moves and streches it is possible to injure yourself if anything feels wrong just modify it to something you are accustomed to. One of the things I really like about these workouts are that they really keep you coming back. As an instructer Jane Fonda is really positive and upbeat but not in an annoying way. I have really improved my cardiovascular health doing Jane Fonda videos something I was never abel to do with other newer tapes, I do not know what it is, but I love these tapes. I wish they were all on DVD!
The back of the video reads:
"My workout is designed to build strength, develop flexibility and increase endurance. To get the full benefit from the workout you must do it with me from beginning to end without stopping. It is this vigorous and sustained use of your entire body that will not only tone your muscles but will burn up calories, improve your circulation, eliminate toxins and strengthen your heart and lungs.
"The basis of the workout is the repitition of certain movements that use a single muscle group against the resistance of your own body weight. The repititions are followed by stretches to develop flexibility and keep your muscles long...."
It is not fancy - but believe me it works. At this moment, I was stunned that I found another copy. I wore out the two I previously owned and, even with the age of cyberspace, have yet to find another one.
On January 7, 2004, I awoke to say - enough is enough - no more weighing
211 pounds. Today, June 10,2007, I awoke to make a decision about buying a particular dress and the only size the store had was a 6. Presently, I
wear a size 10 and with the help of Weight Watchers and my own determination weight 141 - or 70 lbs less.
The road was steep and long - but if you want it enough - you can do it!
Trust me, if the original cheesecake baby did it, anyone can and that I know that I once again have this workout tape - dress ahead.
Please believe me - this tape is better than good - it is a lifesaver.

Three star rating is due to the bouncing, which can be dangerous. Small pulses are safer. The workout is tough. It works your muscles- seriously. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Janet M. Hawn
